The Secret Keeper by Siobhan Curham

From actress to spy.

Elena Garcia was approached by her director and asked if she was interested in helping in the war effort.   She said yes.

After a few weeks, she gets a call and makes a mysterious trip to Washington, D.C. where she was sent to a “spy” training camp.

She did very well and was sent to Spain to try to find German spies and to find information.

She takes risks and falls in love…she was told to not fall in love.

We follow her as she ends up in danger.  She did make me nervous with some of the things she did - I definitely would not be a good spy.

THE SECRET KEEPER was a great history lesson but did drag at times.

It was interesting to learn that Spain took a major role in the war and for hiding spies from both sides of the war.

The book is based on true events.  4/5

This book was given to me by the publisher via NetGalley for an honest review.
